    I agree wit u Jenim. The close up pics on 930 look much better than 1020. Actualy the 1020 was never good on taking pics very close to an object.
    My work around for this one was taking a clear shot, zoom and crop on 1020. Works for me. I have never taken shot in 34 MP or DNG. IMO 34 MP shots would be worth it if you have a lot of zooming and cropping to do.
    Cheers

    Even zoomed and cropped close up looks better with Lumia 930

    So you recommend switching from a 1020 to a 930? Thanks!!!
    If I were to recommend anything, it would be to buy both. :)
    It's possible that we shall not see a successor to the 1020, so you may wish to consider buying one while there are still some available.

    Black. It's simply beautiful and looks a lot smaller for some reason. The aluminium frame is more discreet because it's black too.

    Really? I took the black one back, looked like a boring slab of nothing without the screen on.
    Aluminum should be aluminum in colour, looks loads better laid down with a black screen, silver sides and a colour bleeding out from underneath

    I think the black color doesnt favor the 930 design lines. I mean the aluminum doesnt pop up and looks too dark...look like those cheap android phones :-/

    Although I own a white version. But I find black the best, as there is a consistence with the overall theme. With rest of the colors, we have black glass in the front, silver aluminium frame followed by white or orange or green. Just doesn't match the theme.

    I chose black, because I reasoned, rightly or wrongly, that it might radiate heat better and help keep the phone cool if inclined to overheat....which in fact it has never done, though it gets warm when using Camera for long periods.

    Yeah, I thought that too. Used to have the white version and the black one just feels slimmer and more upmarket. Same with cars - look at a black and a white version of the same model and the black one always looks much smaller. I suppose that's why we wear black clothes if we want to appear slimmer, lol.

    But if you buy a Lamborghini, you get orange or green or it's just not worth it. 😉

    Black doesnt look good for all the Lumia devices. Lumia 920 and 1520 looks worse in black. I had the same perception for Lumia 930 too, until I saw one. Lumia 930 and iPhone 5s looks good in black

    It seems these are Cyan devices. With my 930 I've noticed significant battery life improvements with Denim as well as camera picture quality. I got mine for 299 at base.de and for that price its an amazing phone. I take it with me when I don't want to lurk my bulky Pentax K-3 with me :).

    Much more detail on the 1020 and better color re-production. But 930 still not bad.

    Disagree on the detail, they are about the same. The 1020 has too much yellow. Seems the 930 has better DR too looking at the background of the buildings in the middle. The 930 shot looks more "normal" to me.

    Interestingly now that I look at them again in their compact size the 930 one does look more normal. However, when I open the full size image on my laptop, the 930 one looks more dull and washed out...while the 1020 one looks more sharp and more real.

    So its 1:45 am, and I went to my roof and took one more sample. And just for fun, took one from the OPO as well. No settings were altered, just did a point and shoot.

    Wow. As I said earlier (I'm not sure what thread it was...) the 930 does favour higher ISO for some reason almost to the point that it makes those pictures unusable. So I always set the ISO manually when shooting at night. Lumia 930 does seem to have same kind of preference for duller (or perhaps neutral) photos just like my DSLR. Maybe I should do a test with 930, 1020 and my Nikon.

    Btw. If you have uncalibrated monitors you could argue a lot and completely disagree about colours and both can be right in their opinions.

    Now here the 930s camera result looks better to me. More realistic.
